It is also known as nodular elastosis with cyst and comedones. The pathophysiology of disease causation is unknown, the condition may arises due to prolonged sun exposure. We report a case of 68 year old male agriculturist who presented with dark colored raised lesions along with thickening of facial skin which was increasing progressively since past three years. Physical examination showed the presence of thickened inelastic skin along with deep furrows and wrinkles involving the entire face, along with multiple open and closed comedones yellowish papules and nodules clustered especially around periocular region and dorsum of nose. On histopathological examination epidermis showed epidermal cyst formation containing laminated keratin and superficial dermis shows follicular infundibular plugging and large nodules filled with keratinous material.
